I’m 15 almost 16 years old and nobody knows I like both females and males (till now)I grew up in a Hispanic household and liking the same sex is almost a sin depending who you are talking to in my family.I have kept this secret from my family and friends. The reason why I haven’t come out to my parents is that almost every day Or every time I talk to my Dad he is always reminding me of how when I’m older I’m going to marry a MAN and have kids and things like that. I’m not really sure how to tell him I like both sexes, and I know it’s going to be hard because my father is really old school and he won’t understand I know he will love me either way and he will try to understand but I’m so scared of coming out.
Sometimes my parents would catch me looking at someone either girl or boy and ill try to play it off like ” ooh I like those jeans” or “I like those shoes” and they would make a Stupid joke like ” ooh you are looking at girls!?” I knew you liked girls and then say some homophobic shit and I get mad and say of course I don’t like girls… I know its wrong of me but What can I do? besides, wait and see what happens…
I want to wait it out till I move out but that’s not going to solve my problems… I’m going to have to face my fears at some point. but for now, I sit int he dark and wait until I’m ready to come out to my family.
For now, I’m going to live life to the max and wait till I find Someone I care about and see where things go from there. Hopefully one day (soon) I can talk to my parents about it. and they would understand
